Armour Treet appears to be the same thing as Spam, at half the cost (almost exactly half at Wal-Mart). How does the taste and shelf life compare?

Shelf life is probably the same.
I think Spam tastes better than Treet.

I don't like Treet.

I suggest you try a can of each.

I agree Spam tastes better than Treet. The canned "hams" like DAK and Brookdale are about the same as Spam but a little cheaper.

Treet has more carbs per serving than Spam.

As a guess, it probably uses more starch as a binder.

I think Spam also tastes better and comes in more flavored varieties.
The difference between theory and reality is that, in theory, there is no difference between theory and reality, but in reality, there is.

We (wife and I) like the DAK hams better than Spam.

A quick check of the ingredients..... they are not the same.
DAK: Ham cured with water, salt, sugar.
Spam: Pork with ham, salt, water, modified potato starch, sugar.

hmmm, the Hot & Spicy Spam also has mechanically separated chicken. yummy.

I much prefer Spam.

I just had the last can in my pantry.

Expiration date was January 2008.

It was still good. In fact it was very good.

My Dad always liked treat better. He also liked vienna sausages.

Personally I like the Spam best.

We like Treet best. My dad would never let Spam in the house, something about having to eat it 24/7 during WWII. Wifes dad was the same way but theirs was a cost issue, trying to feed a family of 8 kids you had to watch your dollars.

I prefer Spam to Treat. Treat does have more carbs I think. So I might pass it up on that basis alone.

DAK canned hams are pretty good too.

There are several brands of canned corned beef I like as well. The stuff I get at Aldi is as good as any of them.

The Kroger brand of meat is kinda tasty and is less salty than Spam. But I keep both.

That's prolly why they make it 'hot and spicy'!

It's also quite a bit sweeter - so there could be more sugar or corn syrup in it.

I tried a can of Treet.
And I ended up feeding it to the feral cats that live under the house.

I just tried some Treet, since it was cheaper than even the WM brand of spam.
think it's how you season it prior to stir frying, then adding to other stuff (rice, noodles, beans, ect)
With the same ammount of prep, Spam is better;
still tweaking what will make Treet better; need to find this magic bullet so I can start using it to save some $$$

the spicy Spam will light you up, so tread lightly (just spicy, not like pepper hot)

Yep. Treet has a very sweet taste to it that doesn't seem to belong. Couldn't even finish the one can I tried.

For Treet or Spam or any of the cheap canned meats try dicing it, frying it up, throwing in some chopped onion, then add eggs and make an omelet. Cheap and good.

Don't add salt, the canned meat has more than enough.
